Haines Kinetic: “Baby Dragon (yellow)” mobile/kinetic sculpture

After I sold the first “Baby Dragon,” my wife was sad. She (and I) thought it was really cute. She suggested I make another one, but this time in yellow.

“Why yellow?” I asked.

“Because it’s a happy mobile, and yellow is a happy color.”

Works for me!

This is a petite, delicate mobile. The shapes are 3D-printed using PLA filament, hand-sanded and painted and then connected using stainless steel wire. It’s fully articulated, meaning each element can rotate 360 degrees. This means there are infinite variations. It’s very responsive to indoor breezes (which is where it should live…it’s not an outdoor dragon).

Dimensions are roughly 15” high by 15” día. (38 x 38 cm)
